important aspect of today's meeting is that we agree to say that bashar al-assad has no future in syria. the family has no future in syria. the syrian opposition is under strong and conflicting pressures. its international partners are adamant that it should take part in peace talks this month. fighters on the ground reject a formula that could enable bashar al-assad to hold on to power. so the meeting ended without a clear yes or no from the syrian national coalition. the americans and their partners want the geneva talks to take place in 10 days. it's difficult to see how that would happen without an empty seat at the table. >> syria plunged into civil war after 2011 after uprising. the u.s. labelled two libyan groups terrorist organizations for their role in the benghazi attack two years ago. it's the first time the state department blamed someone. >> the groups are not believed to be affiliated with al qaeda, but they pose as big a threat. the attack in benghazi killed four americans, including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. >> israeli pay their respects to former president ariel sh

in syria. this is the people the president appealed to the american, congress, the american people that we should intervene on their behalf. he wanted to take the assad regime out, and help the fighters, that are now in the province causing, you know, the issues that we're seeing in iraq right now. the leadership vacuum of the united states military has been filled by iran. that's why the suni tribes don't want to fight. for the government. they don't want to support iran. we were a buffer to the iranian leadership to the i toayatollah and they asked for a standard of forces agreement. it would have eliminated what we are seeing in anbar province. >> there was a question about whether they were going to allow americans to -- >> amnesty. >> exactly. broke down for political reasons. let me ask you this. bah the president has -- seemed to be arguing all along when he was running for re-electionen iraq. a wore he didn't agree with. that was sort of the bad war. he was going to end that one. fight the people who attacked us on 9/11. seeing afghanistan through. now, now we pud olled out. behind
